Abeth's ice is advancing, and the Empire battles not only the Scithrowl but betrayals from within. Nona Grey and her allies have escaped Sherzal's palace, but the way to the Convent of Sweet Mercy, and the challenges to become a full sister in the order, is lined with peril and heartbreak. Even with the power of the shiphearts, Nona knows that the corruption that comes with that power can destroy everything she's learned. A final battle is coming that will force Nona to realize she cannot save all her friends. With the demons inside her vying for control of her decisions, she may not even be able to save herself. Lawrence's storytelling showcases an incredible world, with a cast of women tied by training, powers, and, in some cases, love.
VERDICT Warrior nuns, mystical powers, mysterious technology, and false prophecy come full circle in this stunning, immersive conclusion to a gritty fantasy series with appeal to adults and young adults alike.
